Reviews: The Commuter (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: Tra la classicità asciutta del western metropolitano e l’adrenalina tipica di un B movie, il film di Collet-Serra è il prodotto perfetto per un sabato sera cinematografico. E’ quell’onesto cinema di genere che Hollywood spesso si dimentica di saper fare meglio di chiunque altro.
  • [New] | Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews
  • Andrea Chase @
    • Excerpt: Maintains a breathless pace, and employs camera work that is more sophisticated than the material. 
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
  • Nguyen Le @ InSession Film
    • Excerpt: Out of the three “installments,” The Commuter is the most elevated — and a win’s a win no matter how easy it is to overtake the competition.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: As pointless and forgettable as it is goofily entertaining.
  • Jared Mobarak @
    • Excerpt: The Commuter is entertaining and a worthwhile watch when so few of its ilk are at this time of year. It simply doesn’t do anything new or necessarily inventive. Think of it and Collet-Serra for that matter as the blue collar, meat and potatoes staple the industry needs to chug along in its escapist bliss.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
  • Frank Ochieng @ The Critical Movie Critics
    • Excerpt: In the stylish yet tepid transport mystery/thriller The Commuter the concocted suspense is needlessly derailed for yet another exploration into familiar territory that Neeson has woodenly demonstrated before such as working middle-class malaise, familial jeopardy, kidnapping, shadowy baddies and an overactive taste for showy shenanigans in the name of unbridled vengeance.
  • Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
    • Excerpt: The Commuter is a bait-and-switch action picture that’s got good bait and a very weak switch. You’ve already seen this movie. Trust me, dear reader. You’ve been through the paces.
